Thrill Seeker Hangs Off 250-Foot Crane by One Hand

These days, it seems like there’s no end to the stunts people will try.  So, with that in mind, we ask you this: How do you feel about dangling from a 250-foot crane? Probably not so good — assuming a human’s natural vertigo, or if intense terror doesn’t fit into your schedule today.

While most of us still can’t get over the trauma caused by climbing the 18 foot rope in gym class, daredevil James Kingston voluntarily hung himself from a 250 foot crane in Southampton, England’s Ocean Village. If that isn’t daring enough, when watchign the video you’ll see Kingston take one hand off, letting himself dangle from that amazing height by just his right hand.

The video takes you through the whole journey, from the bottom on up. And, if you’re like us, while watching the “man hangs off crane high above a city” video from the safety of your home, you won’t be able to control your own heart rate as the 22 year-old makes his way closer and closer to the top.

Kingston’s other well-known taped stunts include running through Southampton rooftops, and testing his acrobatic tricks off of them. But for now, we’ll just try to keep our eyes on this one. Check it out.
